This spectacular 47 acre parcel has been approved to be subdivided into 34 residential lots. Lot sizes vary from smaller lots, up to larger lots. This magnificent property features a Howard Van Doren Shaw 7,500 sq. ft. estate home, farm house, stable and a large pond. Incredible opportunity available to purchase one of the most anticipated new developments, "Westleigh Farm". It's widely believed that this gracious property served as F. Scott Fitzgerald's introduction to the good life by his love Ginevra King, daughter of the estate's original owner, who was portrayed as Daisy Buchanan in his novel "The Great Gatsby". Ideally located in a serene country estate setting, yet in close proximity to shopping and transportation. One of the last remaining large tracts of vacant land on the North Shore.
